Amazon has filed sales figures for its UK business, which show that revenue jumped 20% last year – and a startling 82% on pre-pandemic levels – as lockdown and heightened restrictions drove more shoppers to the online giant.

According to filings made today at the US Securities and Exchange Commission, sales in the UK leapt to £23.6 billion ($31.9 billion) in 2021 from £19.6 billion ($26.5 billion) in 2020. This is dramatically ahead of the £13 billion ($17.5 billion) of sales taken pre-pandemic in 2019.

Amazon has been a big winner over the past two years as shoppers have turned to online shopping in the face of store closures during lockdown and fears over rising infections.
